Mr ACD really likes orchids and has attempted several times to keep some around the house. Green-thumbed as we both are in general, we simply cannot manage to keep one alive beyond a couple of weeks. We have now given up, but hope to learn to care for them some day. As for myself, I started off not liking them very much but have grown a liking to them very gradually over the years, especially the vibrant fuschia, blue and purple ones. I stumbled upon this picture on Pinterest and was inspired to do some simple nail art based on the colours:
On my thumb, index and pinky fingers, I’m wearing three thin coats of ILNP Hush, over which I stamped using Pure Ice Superstar and Moyra Vintage-2 (plate 25). I find myself using this particular image a lot because it’s perfect when I want something very light and delicate. And guess what I did next? I put a white-based nail polish (KBShimmer Prints Charming) on my middle and ring fingers! I am just full of variety & surprises, am I not?
There is a bright, almost-turquoise shift to Hush that I didn’t notice I hadn’t captured in these photos because I was apparently too busy trying to catch the purple! I’m doing a swatch post on Hush soon, and I promise you’ll see more colour shifts of this beauty there. 🙂
That’s it, folks. Have you ever kept orchids? If so, please share some tips on how to care for them. And how do you like this manicure? Do you love multichromes and glitter crellies/jellies as much as I do? Let me know your answers to all these questions by commenting below! And have a great weekend!
